    New here, forgot password, got email to put in new password. When I go there it says that I have to put in old password to get new one. Duh, My old password doesn't work, what to do?

    It was probably an oversight, but right after it asked you to input your old password, there was a section that displayed: Request New Password. After clicking on the link, you will see the image displayed in the attached photo.

    Hi,
    Saw this thread, and I may need some assistance as well. Borrowing from your words, it may be an oversight on my part but I can't find any option to change my password (after I get the one-time link sent to my email) without having to enter the old one. I appreciate the help.

    Try again. It should work for you. Once you get to the page depicted a few post up, all you should have to do is enter the username you initially registered and it should send you a new password to the email address that you have registered with Apple.

    Thanks for your reply. I did receive an email with a temporary link that logs me into iMore automatically. However, when I go to reset my password, it asks me for my current one (which is the one I don't remember). Again, thanks for the patience.

    Just for the heck of it, I went through the process of resetting my password via the link I provided a few posts up and when I received the email link containing the one time login and clicked on it, it asks for a password and to confirm the password. It did NOT ask for the old password. I simply typed in a password that I want to use and then re-typed it in the confirmation box and voila! That was it. Nothing else needed to be done.

    Ok, these were my steps:
    clicked on link you shared earlier in this thread.
    answered the captcha question and got further instructions sent to my email address.
    the link provided in the instructions opens the iMore homepage with the green text box with another link to resetting my password.
    the link takes me to a form asking me to input my current password. I've attached a snapshot for you to see

    Am I missing something? I can't feel but frustrated with myself (and I bet you are too).

    thanks.

    I don't know what else to tell you, my friend. I really don't. I did not get the page depicted in your screenshot. My experience was exactly how I described it in my previous post so at this point, I suggest you send a PM to one of the mods.

    I suggest you clear the cache for your browser first, then perform the password rest (forgot password) again.

    IF it happens to ask for the old password during the process, entire the temporary one that was emailed to you...
